Baking a sweetened almond flour-based bread is one of my favorite treats to keep on hand in the freezer! They pair well with coffee or tea, are packed with protein and healthy fats, and easy to heat up for a busy weekday morning for breakfast. My Morning Glory Bread is such a huge hit with my family, that I am consistently looking for new flavors to create!

As a nutritionist, I am always seeking ways to enjoy delicious baked goods in the healthiest way possible. Using almond flour as a base provides healthy fats and also enhances the protein content! This coconut flavored loaf is also loaded with MCT oils from the coconut. MCT oils allow your body to produce ketones that are helpful for cognitive health! This is a healthy loaf cake recipe you can feel good about eating anytime of day.
How to make Almond Flour Loaf Cake
Here are the simple ingredients you will need:
- Almond flour
- Coconut flakes
- Baking soda
- Can of full fat coconut milk
- Coconut oil
- Unsweetened shredded coconut
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Almond Extract
- Powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. You start by combining the dry ingredients: flour, coconut flakes, baking soda, and salt. We will also have a separate bowl with wet ingredients: coconut milk, eggs, coconut oil, and honey. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and pour into a loaf pan. Transfer to the oven!
This recipe comes together with about 10 minutes of prep time and 40 minutes of bake time. Remove the loaf cake from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Set the oven to broil! We will now make the glaze. Place the coconut flakes and coconut on a baking sheet and toast until browned for 1-2 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together coconut milk, almond extract, and powdered sugar in a medium sized bowl. Transfer the loaf cake to parchment paper. Drizzle the glaze on top, then sprinkle toasted coconut.
Serving and Storing
After cooled, slice and serve! Store in an air tight container in the fridge or countertop for up to 5 days. If you want to freeze and enjoy at a later date, wrap into individual slices first. Simply bring to room temperature before enjoying. This will take about 25 minutes.
